As of morning hours, XRP is priced at $ 0.4759 with a loss of 0.98%. In XRP, we see that the return from 0.46 support was cut off before too long and even 0.48 could not be exceeded. The 0.46 and 0.42 levels will be important in the downward movement in Ripple.

With the return from the support level in MKR, we see that the trend climbed to 1130 regions again, but could not reach the resistance zone of 1140-1145. We can say that the target levels will be 1140 and 1190 if the upward movement of Maker, which has positive pricing compared to the market, continues.
